On Wednesday, actor Anupam Kher shared a video on his Instagram handle and says that he got a reality check after a man from Himachal Pradesh fails to recognize him.
In the video, it seems that the actor was on his morning walk and engages in a conversation with the resident, Gyan Chand Thakur while he was passing by. Anupam Kher asked the man about his name during their conversation and after the man responds, the actor asked if he knows him. While the man smiled and politely said ‘no’. Even after the actor removed the mask, the man stood clueless.
Anupam shared the video and said that he is glad that the man could not recognize him. When the actor asked him “Kaun hoon main (who am I)?”, the man seems to wonder and replied “kya naam tha (what was the name?)”.
Facing the camera, the actor said “It’s a good moment for me. Chullu bhar paani m doob sakta hoon is samay main (I can die in a fistful of water)”. When Anupam asked him “Film e dekhte hain aap (Do you watch films)?”, he replied that “kam dekhta hoon main (I watch few films)”. Hearing the reply, the actor seems to have a shocked reaction, clutching his chest. At the end of the video, Anupam Kher salutes Gyan Chand.
Anupam Kher captioned the video as “Reality Check I always proudly announce to the world that I have done 518 films. And I presume that everybody (at least in India) knows me. But #GyanChand ji very innocently shattered my confidence. He had no idea who I was. It was funnily heartbreaking and yet beautifully refreshing! Thank you my friend for helping me keep my feet on the ground! #KuchBhiHoDSaktaHai #LifeIsBeautiful #Innocence #Hilarious”.
Recently, the actor was in Shimla with his mother, Dulari Kher. On Wednesday, Anupam left for Mumbai after spending a few days in his hometown Shimla.
